County of Applicant:
Caldwell
Description:

This grant will support the Helping Hands Clinic in Lenoir which provides medical care to those who qualify by supplying free medical office visits, hospital services and pharmaceuticals for patient prescription needs. Due to rising unemployment, Caldwell Memorial Hospital has incurred steady increases in charity care. By providing medical office visits, preventative medicine and pharmaceutical assistance to patients at the Helping Hands Clinic, indigent care clients are able to receive essential primary care. This project will reduce unnecessary emergency room visits and subsequent hospitalizations for qualified clients, thereby reducing the burden of uncompensated care incurred by the hospital.
